Developing Your People Programme

What do successful teams have in common? They all have people working at the top of their game 

If you would like to get more out of your people and ultimately improve your bottom line, then the HR Dept’s Developing Your People Programme could be for you.
  • Would you like your team to develop new skills, get better at what they do and increase their contribution to your organisation?
  • Would you like your team to have the opportunity to learn alongside people from different disciplines and different organisations as well as HR experts?
  • Is it difficult to create the time for this development and to have it delivered in a cost effective and integrated way?
If your answer to any of these questions is “yes”, the Developing Your People Programme is just what you are looking for.
The HR Dept has put together a wide range of topics which will increase the effectiveness of your people, whether they are high flyers or need a bit of gentle persuasion to do things differently.
By improving key employee performance we can help your employees to get better at what they do, freeing you up to do what you are good at.
This programme is suitable for all roles, e.g. sales, marketing, support, production or front line, irrespective of whether they have line management responsibilities or not.
This programme is delivered on a modular basis and covers nine key areas of development, each delivered through a two-hour interactive workshop:
  • How to delegate effectively
  • Time management
  • Communication
  • Handling difficult conversations
  • Delivering great customer service
  • Key principles of project management
  • Self-awareness
  • Understanding other people
  • Coaching for success
The programme is flexible, so you can swap delegates for different modules if you want to make sure you get the best value for you.

  • More engaged employees and higher morale
  • Highly interactive learning, participative and responsive to the needs of delegates
